Please let me introduce myself. My name is Jazz McLearie and I am a 2nd Dan, black belt in Karate.
My involvement with martial arts began in 2001, when I originally studied Kung Fu and Kick Boxing under the organisation I.K.B.K.O., achieving my Brown Belt in Kung Fu and Blue Belt in Kick Boxing. I changed disciplines to take up Shotokan Karate in January 2006.
My experience as a secondary school Teaching Assistant, together with my former role as a Police Officer with Thames Valley Police, further enhance my ability to instil the skills and disciplines of Shotokan Karate, particularly with younger students. I have been a Sensei for over 4 years.
My enthusiasm and passion for karate have continued to grow and I am now very excited to be starting my own classes, where I hope to pass on that positivity to my students.
